Intelligent Cyber Security

As companies embrace the opportunities presented by cloud and mobile computing to connect with customers and optimize operations, they take on new risks. One of the biggest

challenges in digital transformation is ensuring security, privacy, and compliance.

Traditional IT boundaries are disappearing and organisations now need to protect data on employee-owned mobile devices and SaaS applications not operated by the IT team. If they do not adapt their approach to security, companies face the risk of significant financial loss, damage to customer satisfaction, and market reputation.
